    Do you recall who told you that??

    No, sorry I don't. It was the first guy who answered the phone, and they have a CTS v that they race.

    Re: Traction Control question

    the reason you want to leave your suspension settings in "touring mode" is for better rearward weight transfer when launching, increasing rear wheel traction. D3 probably recommends turning off the nannies to prevent the ECM from cutting power or timing if wheelslip is detected.

    In my Z06 (similar, but still different) each independent brake caliper could be activated during traction control to keep the car orientated. ANY wheel slip and the power was markedly reduced in conjunction w/ braking to make you literally feel like you're being thrown forward (when you are mashing the pedal, this is definitely wierd).

    I will add that modern traction control (stabilitrack, whatever) is rather advanced - only the most highly skilled professional drivers can come close to out-driving the competition mode settings, and even then the driver is often faster with traction control settings ON during a road course. Drag racing might vary due to the throttle reduction that often occurs with wheelspin.

    I had my car almost completely sideways with TC off and stabilitrak fully on this afternoon.
